1997-10-04 Dariusz Michalczewski w rtd 7 Nicky Piper, Stadium Sports Hall, Hannover, Germany - WBO. Referee: Raul Caiz. Dropped twice in the opening session was the worst possible start for Piper (174½), but it did not stop him from displaying indomitable courage to hit back whenever he could. The problem that the challenger had was in keeping Michalczewski (175) at bay long enough to take stock, the latter merely walking through the punches thrown at him. Fighting on bravely, Piper continued to work well at times before being overpowered in the seventh. Having been knocked down by right to the head, Piper got up and defied Michalczewski to drop him again, taking everything coming his way before being retired by his corner during the interval.
